An example of period footwear such as was worn in the Scottish Highlands from the late 16th Century and earlier until the middle of the 18th Century. These replica ghillie brogues were made from a single piece of leather according to a pattern. They were then wrapped around the foot and laced up to hold them in place. The leftmost of the pair is partially unfolded so as to show the pattern. This pair is from a Society for Creative Anachronism exhibit.
